mini album: building a house

Kelly – Australia writes:

I was first inspired to complete a mini album when I saw Petra Corcoran’s Road Trip mini album and I began brewing a plan. This week that plan came into action. I wanted to put together a photo book for our house build photos but I knew I wanted to included load’s of journalling and maybe some bits and pieces if I could so of course the Midnight mini album was perfect!  

I also wanted to keep the design pretty simple I have a Midnight Edition on order (via Craft House) but this little project couldn’t wait I wanted to do it as the build happens and I remember how it makes us feel as well as the details of what is happening so I purchased the kit digitally and away I went.

A few other notes from Kelly:

1. We started the process of looking for land and a house mid 2012 but the actual build didn’t start until February of this year so the album and the house are still a work in progress.

2. I haven’t included the front page of the album as i want that to be a photo of the completed house.

3. I love how beautifully this has come together and can’t wait to send it over with my husband when he visits his family in the UK so they too can see our beautiful house.

    Love this idea so much! Me and my partner are finalizing the plans for our house we’re going to build at the moment. We won’t start building for another 2-3 months though, since we still need council approval. I’ve been including some details in my project life pages, and journalling about it in my diary, but this would definitely be a perfect way to document it in more detail! Thanks for sharing, Kelly!!

  8. I love this idea! We built our first home through Habitat for Humanity and this would be such a great way to capture the year and a half that changed our lives.

    Thank you for sharing!
